Rainy Friday, Stormy Holiday Weekend; NOAA Hurricane Predictions (Video)


South Florida will be rainy on Friday, and the weekend is shaping up to be stormy. After early showers, Friday features clouds, maybe a bit of sun, and periods of showers and storms. Highs on Friday will be in the low 80s.



Faith Based Events

As the disturbance we’ve been watching makes its closest approach to South Florida over the weekend, expect a washout of a holiday weekend. Saturday will bring clouds, showers, and some storms. Saturday’s highs will be in the mid 80s.



Sunday will be a repeat, with clouds, showers, and storms. An isolated tornado is not out of the question. And we’ll need to watch out for localized flooding in already-saturated areas. Sunday’s highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Memorial Day will feature some sun, more clouds, and periods of showers and storms. Monday’s highs will be mostly in the mid 80s.

Tuesday will feature a mix of sun and clouds, periods of showers, and a few afternoon storms. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 80s.

We continue to watch the disturbance that is emerging into the southern Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance has a high chance of becoming a tropical or subtropical depression this weekend. Its exact track will determine just how bad our weekend weather will be and how much rain falls on South Florida.

NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has just released their predictions for the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Veuer’s TC Newman explains what they say you should expect.
